Sound Impression: LC01 by Low Chord


Low Chord is a new experimental ambient project from Ontario-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Scott Orr and musician Gareth Inkster. Their first release debut next month on Orr’s Other Songs label with an EP entitled LC01. It is a finespun medley of “non-linear compositions” formulated with analog synths, lo-fi field recordings, and beautiful nylon string guitar by Orr intertwined with Inkster’s sparkling improvisations on piano.

The 26-minute run time occupied by these seven vignettes goes by quickly, all the more reason to lend it full attention so as to enjoy the intricate filigree and lovely melodic passages that coalesce during the development of each piece not to mention the sublime interplay between the two musicians. LC01 is modest release, but not one to be overlooked if you enjoy thoughtfully crafted electroacoustic music of an introspective nature.
